Hi, just trucking on developing here…
The thing is, we have an e2e test suite and whilst development I like running against it + i use it as my “development server” at the same time, because, honestly, two meteor instances building in parallel, especially with intellij’s “save at every tab switch” - approach sounds like an early heat death coming for my poor Notebook CPU rather sooner than later .
Now I was wondering, why is the database sometimes gone? -> And now it dawned on me: it’s getting cleared out by Meteor itself on the start of each
meteor test - session!
I never thought about it because we’re doing all the setup, data loading + resetting for the tests manually anyways, so for us that’s a waste of time…
And especially it’s a bit bothersome for me right now, because I like to stop and restart my development server from time to time and continue on trucking.
Right now I have to run a test to setup our initial fixture data etc, which really isn’t a big deal, but I’d really also like to handle that myself.
SO: Is there an option (sneaky environment variable? Magic switch combination?) to run with the
tmeasday:acceptance-test-driver - package without my database getting razed on every run?
